The Pursuit Celebrates One Year on H Street NE


The Pursuit Wine Bar (1421 H Street) is turning one and they have a whole week of celebration planned. If you haven't stopped by recently, this is a great week to do it. Full press release follows.

The Pursuit Wine Bar, voted Best Wine Bar in DC[1], celebrates their one-year anniversary this week.  To celebrate The Pursuit will be opening early on Sunday, June 14 at 2pm with drink specials all night.  With over 45 wines by the glass, regulars and new faces alike can find a new favorite and enjoy the comfort of olds.  Guests can also experience one of the many house-infused cocktails - try staff favorite - the Anjou Mule.

The celebration does not stop on Sunday and festivities continue throughout the week.  Come enjoy locals’ not-so-best kept secret – Heavy Pour Mondays – when guests get a 1/3 of a bottle of wine for a standard glass price all night long.  Two 4 Tuesdays invite couples, roommates and friends to double-down on two build-your-own grilled cheeses and get $2 off each ($2+$2 = $4).

The post-inaugural year also welcomes new things – The Pursuit Wine Bar will debut its new Decanter Wednesday night beginning June 17.  All night long The Pursuit will be pouring premium wines by the glass, half-glass and tasting-pour glass.  Guests will have an affordable opportunity to taste and enjoy new and exciting wines commonly only available by the bottle with price tags that often exceed the reason of the common person.

The Pursuit Wine Bar is the inaugural wine and food creation of Thomas Boisvert and Kathleen Davis.  The Pursuit offers over 45 wines by the glass, delicious complimentary small bites and custom grilled cheeses.  In addition to six wines on draft, The Pursuit offers a fabulous collection of house infusions and craft cocktails.  With an affordable wine list that knows no geographical borders or varietal boundaries, The Pursuit has a grape to match any taste palate, whether new to the great world of wine or a budding sommelier.

The Pursuit Wine Bar is located at 1421 H Street NE in Washington, DC.  They are open daily at 5pm for dinner and drinks and Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm for brunch.  Reservations can be made online at  For inquiries please email
